Part of Sixth Street in Traverse City will be closed to drivers through early June.
Sixth Street between S. Elmwood Ave. to the west side of the intersection at Beaumont Place will be closed while crews make improvements to existing utilities and install a new culvert.
The closure began Monday and is expected to be completed by June 9.
The work will require the street to be closed to all traffic for most of the time the project is under construction.
Traffic will be detoured using Front street, but drivers are asked to use alternate routes to avoid the area to reduce congestion and delays.
